The picture book Rigojanči – ljubav kao slatko nadahnuće (Rigojanči – Love as Sweet Inspiration) is part of a project conceived by the Maritime and Historical Museum of the Croatian Littoral Rijeka and the Peak&Poke Museum, which, first in an exhibition and now through this book, presents the rigojanči, a confection inspired by the love between Hungarian violinist Jancsi Rigó and Belgium’s Clara Ward, Princesse de Caraman Chimay.

The presentation of the picture book will include a concert by the pupils from the Ivan Matetić Ronjgov Music School, who will dedicate their performance to love and the first day of spring.
